Bennett Construction is a family-owned, tier-1 construction contractor that has been at the forefront of construction for over 100 years and is now in its fourth generation. It undertakes projects in Ireland, the UK and Germany, and it currently has 14 projects on site with a combined value of over €800m. The company employs over 200 people.
Bennett Construction ethos
Bennett’s organisational structure has evolved over its 100-year history, but it retains a hands-on approach to projects with director involvement in every project. This focus of senior management sets Bennett apart from many of its competitors and allows it to deliver for clients repeatedly and to be rewarded with repeat business from many client groups.
Over the decades, Bennett has built and nurtured a robust and diverse supply chain. It has built strong relationships with its partners over many years and can ensure that any delivery challenges on each project are matched by the skill sets within its supply chain.
As a business entity and in its corporate culture, Bennett has always strived to achieve a sustainable approach to developments and construction projects. Over the years, it has built systems around operations that control, complement and guide every facet of the business daily. This ensures that clear lines exist in relation to project delivery and governance. It was the first construction company in Ireland to achieve certification to ISO 14001 for its Environmental Management System. It operates an overall Integrated Management System, which allows it to understand and manage risks in relation to the delivery of construction projects, and this has driven overall awareness within the business. Its systems are regularly audited, both internally and externally and certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 45001.
Bennett continues to be guided by firmly held ethical values with mutual respect and fairness as a keystone in the safe and sustainable delivery of projects. Its documented systems ensure that openness and fairness are clearly evident in the business and that it consistently delivers with engrained integrity.
Last year, Bennett was accredited with the Investors in Diversity Bronze, and it is continuing its journey this year to achieve the Silver award. providing a clear statement to its colleagues and clients that it is committed to ensuring a diverse and equal industry.
